A week in Idaho

Well the week started out with this...
I rode to Idaho with Gordon's brother and met my grandma. On the way back to her house we got a flat tire at 10:30pm so we decided to park it for the night and worry about it Monday. Luckily my friend Nikki came to the rescue and picked us up...
Have fun in Germany Nikki, I'm going to miss you!!
On Monday my dad came to help and got a new tire for my grandma.
Tydon and I spent Monday afternoon at the laundry mat getting all the bedding washed and then headed back to my mom's for some deep cleaning...

Tuesday and Wednesday my mom had Dr appointments and we finished the cleaning. She is still just taking it one day at a time, but doing better each day.

Wednesday night I went to visit one of my friends from High School. We actually got pretty close in college and I'm so glad we did. She is such a sweety. She just bought a new house so I went over to visit. I stole her picture from facebook!

Thursday was a crazy day...
Tydon had a runny nose all week and he coughed all night and Thursday morning he wasn't breathing too good. He just wanted to lay around and sleep so I decided I better take him into Urgent Care. They gave him a breathing treatment and took a chest x-ray to see what was going on. Sure enough the PA said he had Bronchitis so I was off to the pharmacy for some meds. My mom had to run some errands so she took the car and I was left with my grandma's car. Normally this would be fun, but not when you are taking your sick kid to the Dr.
On the way home from the pharmacy Tydon threw up in the backseat!!
I was FREAKING out. This car is my grandma's baby and she only drives it on special occasions or to take it to the car wash.
It was almost 5pm and that's when she gets of work so I hurried back to her house, got Tydon out of his seat, stripped him and put him in the tub. I frantically took the car seat out and took it apart to get the cover in the washer and then I was back out to the car with soap and water to start scrubbing. Luckily it wasn't too bad, grateful for leather seats!! I got Tydon cleaned up, dressed and on the couch watching Diego before she walked through the door. I was sweating... nothing like a little excitement for the day.
Anyone that knows "Great" would understand my distress :)

After I got Tydon to bed, our Mother's Day party started.
"Great" got me a pedicure so I could have cute toes for the weekend.
It felt sooo good!! Every woman deserves some pampering.
Then it was time for dinner...
We LOVE artichokes thanks to my Grandpa. He was the best cook!

Is that the biggest piece of crab meat you've ever seen??? It was soo yummy!!
My Aunt got 3 packages of crab legs
1 lobster tail
2 artichokes
She made super yummy Hot Wing Dip too (I'll have to get the recipe)
All of this was for 4 people!!
To cook Crab Legs:

Keep Crab Legs frozen until you preheat the oven
Preheat oven to 250
Rinse the Crab under warm water to get ice off
Lay on cookie sheet
Bake in oven until warm to touch
Serve HOT!! amazing...

We like to dip the crab meat in butter and squeeze fresh lemon on top! YUM!!
I slept very well that night ;)

Tydon was feeling much better Friday morning and excited to go to Mud Lake for the weekend. Gordon's mom is such an amazing person! She is always willing to help where needed. I love her! Gordon's dad is so cute with Tydon too. Tydon loves riding the tractor and the horses with grandpa.
After I dropped Tydon off with Janet, I headed back to my parents to load up and head to Boise with my dad and Brody. We stayed with my dad's sister. After dinner we headed to...
We rode Go Karts for 3 hours!! It was a blast.
My favorite was when all they had left was a double so I rode with my dad and we SMOKED em' it was fun!
We got to sleep in Saturday morning, ate breakfast and headed to the water.
We ski on man-made lakes. There was a Pro Water Skier in town so we took Brody over to ski with him.
Getting ready...
Black and Pink Malibu...
My dad rode in the boat to listen to the critiquing.
After we left Broadside we headed over to Gilbert Lake to pick up my dad's new boat.
We were all so excited to get in the water for the first time this year.
It was 70 degrees with no wind, it couldn't have been better!

Brody was still tired from skiing with Nick so I got to go first.
I was just excited I still fit in my wetsuit!!

Then my dad...
Then Brody... Look at the water!! Glass
Brody is getting so good! I'm pretty sure he's going to beat my dad at one of the tournaments this year... :) I'm glad I got enjoy the water once this Summer even though I'm prego.
Gotta start em young!! ha ha

Thanks family for a fun week in Idaho!!
I'm happy to be back home with my hubby.
